I use O-rings to rebuild the 9810 card reader roller, but I turn a new 
hub from brass rod with a groove to take the O-ring....

Making a complete new metal hub for the tape drive would be a lot harder, 
due to the tachometer disk at the bottom end (I am not sure how easy it 
would be to move this to the new metal hub).
